#WaterPollutionFacts ~ Clean Water Act #NRDC ~ Dirty water is the world's biggest health risk! | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it
NRDC: NRDC fights to safeguard drinking water & protect & restore our rivers, streams, lakes, wetlands & coastal waters. Get information on the Clean Water Act, water pollution causes, effects & solutions.
Marian Locksley's insight:

Clean and plentiful water provides the foundation for prosperous communities. We rely on clean water to survive, yet right now we are heading towards a water crisis. Changing climate patterns are threatening lakes and rivers, and key sources that we tap for drinking water are being overdrawn or tainted with pollution. NRDC experts are helping to secure safe and sufficient water for people and the environment by:

Promoting water efficiency strategies to help decrease the amount of water wasted;Protecting our water from pollution by defending the Clean Water Act and advocating for solutions like green infrastructure;Helping prepare cities, counties and states for water-related challenges they will face as a result of climate change; andEnsuring that waterways have enough water to support vibrant aquatic ecosystems.

Four London AIM listed oil companies carrying out exploration work in Falkland Islands waters have been barred from operating in Argentina.
Marian Locksley's insight:

Last March a referendum on the issue was held in the Falklands and 98% of Islanders (with a 92% turnout) said they wanted to remain a British Overseas Territory.

The government of President Cristina Fernandez has become particularly aggressive and continues to try and blockade Falklands’ trade and communications with greater intensity since 2010, when the current round of oil and gas exploration started off-shore the Islands.

When we assess the ways in which bluefin tuna have been treated over the past two decades, there will be a need to apply the hard lessons of failure and irresponsible fishing. (RT @oceanfolks: Bluefin tuna - the end?
Marian Locksley's insight:

The prospects are poor, the governments are ineffective and the extinction of a precious ocean marvel is imminent. We have to do something, so stop eating the relevant material. Restaurants can start placing posters to assure they won't use tuna, but the only safe path now is to ban all tuna, slowly but surely and very carefully and diplomatically, as many species are now approaching the same fate as the Bluefin.

 

 

If it's pricey, don't eat it!

April 24, 2013 - IPS News

... Penguins are threatened with extinction by climate change and giant fishing trawlers from Europe and Asia stalking the oceans around Antarctica.

Penguins are a protected species, but the factory-sized trawlers are vacuuming up the tiny shrimp-like krill that are their main food source. The Southern Ocean is also becoming increasingly acidic from emissions of fossil fuels and will have a significant impact on krill populations. And yet efforts to create two marine protected areas in the Southern Ocean have been blocked by China, Russia and Norway.... http://www.ipsnews.net/2013/04/krill-super-trawlers-pushing-penguins-toward-extinction/

The Nitrogen Cascade: The Next Big Pollution Problem
Huffington Post
I know that your head is still whirling around thinking about climate change and what to do about it."  Photo by:  Brian Skerry 

Marian Locksley's insight:

There have been mass animal deaths of manatees, dolphins and pelicans in the Indian River Lagoon in Florida reported this summer in The Huffington Post and The New York Times. The probable cause -- the Nitrogen Cascade. Recent surveys by the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute at Florida Atlantic University concluded these estuary waters contained 45 percent more nitrogen than is acceptable. A lot of nitrogen pollution comes from septic tanks, storm water and agricultural runoff. But much of it comes from the air too.

                                             ~ ~ ~

So now ammonia is a fertilizer and the base chemical of the fertilizer and munitions industry. Only a small portion of the nitrogen in ammonia-based fertilizers actually makes its way into the foods we and livestock eat. The rest is emitted to the air or becomes runoff. The food ends up as human waste and livestock excrement. 

 

                 Manatees are creatures sensitive to their environment

Japan’s nuclear regulator has concluded that the Fukushima nuclear plant’s operator was inadequate in its inspection of radioactive water tanks after news of yet another leak. TEPCO earlier admitted it will now require international help.
Marian Locksley's insight:

On Friday, the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) Commissioner Toyoshi Fuketa visited the destroyed Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant to inspect the ongoing radioactive cleanup efforts.

 

Fuketa’s comments follow those of the NRA chairman Shunichi Tanaka, who earlier this week worried that the makeshift giant radioactive containers were prone to failure.

Many projects are lacking in the key elements necessary for the present community-based conservation system to function successfully," Muccio said.

 

Leading marine turtle conservationists and researchers presented a petition to the government of Guatemala expressing their concern. According to the statement, the petition requests that the government take action to counter the mortality of sea turtles, including the monitoring of shrimp trawlers to establish the impact on marine turtle populations.

 

"Sea turtles are also very much part of the identity of the local culture and local communities often take pride in their hatcheries and their contributions to save the sea turtle," Muccio said.
